Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The 2016 Honest John’s White is pale straw in color and has an intense and complex nose filled with aromas of green apple, pears, and lime. These flavours continue strongly onto the palate where they are joined by some additional notes of apricot, and orange blossoms. The palate is fresh and vibrant and has impressive length of flavour, impeccable balance, and a medium-bodied frame.
Vineyard Notes
The 2016 growing season was long, dry and warm, much like the previous 3 vintages. The grapes primarily came from vineyards owned by Road 13, with well-established vines. During harvest the grapes were sampled bi-weekly to measure flavour development and sugar content. Each variety was picked at its optimal point of flavour development.
Production Notes
During vintage, the grapes for the 2016 Honest John’s White were all whole-bunch pressed, gently, before 24 hours of cold settling. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks at cooler temperatures to keep the wine bright and fruit forward. The final blend was assembled in November 2016 and bottled a few weeks later in December.
